Poetry Corner: “Hysterical silence”

Hysterical silence

Canadian Rocky Mountains with majestic craggy mysticism
awe inspiring
towering over Ken and Barbie dwarfs
with mobile phones assaulting the peaks with pictures

Soon their blind eyes tire
such strenuous activity
they can see the damn things on their screen at home
so it is off to air conditioned retreats
of polyester and synthetic leather
deodorized compartments of the living dulled

Down the road another scenic lookout
more corrupted little chocolate smeared faced children
stuffed at the simulated logger’s camp
“all you can eat buffet”

Belly protruding leader of the family pack
Bermudian shorts brain a member of the Senior Management Team
hunter of the high dividend
bought wife with gold and diamonds
that mean so much
and even more to the neigbours

Again all gather at another lookout
object of mockery that they are
the silent massif roar
in hysteria
kings and queens of it all
